Are there indeed? run
ps auxwww|grep sshd
and tell me what user level yours is running at.
How do go about running at another user level, I ask you?
clue_factor=0. Go read the Privilege Separation advisories again.
Tell me. sshd version OpenSSH_3.4p1 Debian 1:3.4p1-1.
/etc/ssh/sshd_config contains PermitRootLogin yes.
Can this sshd be compromised, or not?
